lyrics

An raibh tú ar an gCarraig
Nó an bhfaca tú féin mo ghrá,
Nó an bhfaca tú gile agus finne agus scéimh na mná,
Nó an bhfaca tú an t-úll ba chumhra is ba mhilse bláth,
Nó an bhfaca tú mo vaillintín nó an bhfuil sí á cloí mar 'táim ?

Ní carraig í, ach bean bealtais blásta
I rith na mílaoise - na mílte féastaí
Caite ina haonair - an Bean ón Bhéara
Bandia ab ea í, is ea í, agus a bheidh inti
Ón fainne ama go dtí an deireadh
Buí Bhéara
Deirtear gur iompaigh sí ina carraig
Tar eis Chionn tSáile
Nuair a d'imigh an rí Domhnall Cam thar sáile.

Do bhíos-sa ar an gCarraig
Is do chonaic mé féin do ghrá,
Do chonaic mé gile agus finne agus scéimh na mná,
Do chonaic mé an t-úll ba chumhra is ba mhilse bláth,
Do chonaic mé do vaillintín agus níl sí á cloí mar 'táir ?
